Hello! I have a passion for helping people discover and grow their inner core strengths. I offer thoughtful, compassionate guidance through various wellness modalities, personalizing movement programs to suit individual needs. For over 25 years I have developed a wide knowledge base in many exercise disciplines to help clients feel better, move better, look better. Training and specialties include: Pilates mat and equipment from CORE Dynamics Pilates and PHI Pilates; Pilates for MS & Neurological Conditions, Hole in One Pilates for Golf, Tai Chi for Fall Prevention/ Arthritis (Dr. Paul Lam); Seated Tai Chi; Tai Chi for Energy; Tai Chi Moving for Better Balance; Tai Chi Yang Style 24 Forms; AFAA Personal Fitness Training, SilverSneakers; YMCA Active Older Adult Training. and various other group fitness training certifications. I love to work with a wide variety of ages and needs, and have had years of experience working with mature clients, as well as youths; and with special conditions like Arthritis, ALS, MS and Parkinson’s Disease. I also specialize in posture, gait and movement patterns that can be life changing. In January, 2015, I opened Ellio Pilates, Tai Chi & More in Fort Myers, FL. My mission is to provide thoughtful, responsible and appropriate guidance for people of all ages who seek to live healthier lives with less pain and more vigor using mind-body connecting forms of exercise and self- awareness.
